's a mandate here? >> i don't. because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welc
on nancy pelosi after 20910 elections. >> and mcconnell, interestingly who is the pair gone of the republican establishment has won them over. he made uneasy peace with and paul. it looks to me like mitch mcconnell has wanted to be majority leader since the senate race, ever since then he wanted to be majority leader. now he may never be. things do not look that much better for the republicans two years from now than they do now. he will also face a primary in two years. >> he may or may not. back in 2010 there was a contested primary in kentucky. that caused a bit of a problem for him. people were upset with him. but he has done a lot of work to hug rand paul so close to him and he let him do about whatever he wants to do on the senate floor. when he says i want to go to the floor and cause a big stink about something, mitch mcconnell says go right ahead. he is such a talented politician. he is so smart. in my opinion i think he has done everything he can do to prevent someone -- even if someone wanted to challenge him from the right he has done as much as he can do to keep

then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these idea that we talked about i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we are going to have to make sure it works for the next two years. that means, i think, both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: diane sawyer asked speaker boehner if you are now the de facto leader of the republican party. and his answer was, oh, i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy wonk. >> i take that as a great compliment from john. >> reporter: is that your role in the republican party, the house policy wonk? >> i have also been one of the house policy wonks. my role is to continue to be a champion of ideas, to help our party be a reform party that shows how we get economic growth. >> reporter: i asked ryan about speculation that he would be an early front-runner for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. he told me it is way too early to even think about the next presidential race. jonathan karl, abc ne
of the year. house minority leader nancy pelosi is digging in her heels. >> i don't think it would be a good idea for the republicans to hold middle income tax cuts hostage to tax cuts to the wealthy. we have a deficit that we have to deal with. we have to do it with growth and creation of jobs. we have to do it with cuts, we all know that but we also have to do it with revenue on the table. gregg: in just a few minutes we're going to be talking with one of the republicans that leader pelosi will need to work with in the house of representatives, ways and means committee member peter roskam will be joining us live. martha: we're just getting started here on this monday morning and we're glad to have you with us. we have a brand new report today about the effort to preserve a sacred memorial for veterans deep in the california dessert after vandalism and years of court fights. gregg: plus breaking developments in the middle east. israel firing on syria this morning. we'll have a live report from the israeli-syrian border just ahead. martha: also a massive explosion in a quiet suburb kills two
striking this deal? what about nancy pelosi, harry reid, mitch mcconnell? in 2011 it was basically boehner and obama, this time there might be a few more lawmakers who want in on this deal. jenna: the president's going to be sitting down with leaders later on this week. let's talk about style versus substance, something we talked about a lot with the election. i was reading comments from the ceo of at&t today, also the senior economist from bank of america who say, listen, if they'd reach an agreement, great. but if between now and then and the disagreements look really big and bad, that's going to damage this economy because it just shatters any consumer confidence going into the holiday season. >> yes. jenna: so, ultimately, they could find a solution, but damage will already be done. what dueck about that, bob? what do you think about the style to all this as well? >> that's why -- and i agree with that, they're going to need a deal by mid december because it's going to shatter consumer confidence, and the stock market's going to play a big role here. we saw that in the bailout in 2008
revenue is on the table. which means in order for it to pass, nancy pelosi has to come over and knock on your door. what are your red lines on this? >> i suppose i'll have a number of red lines. number one, not a nickel in reductions and cost of living increases, social security, not a nickel in reductions to benefits to medicare and medicaid. those are probably the most primary red lines. then i would want to see -- >> that's interesting. >> i would want to see -- where you draw the red line, i don't know. i don't want to see more cuts in discretionary spending, i don't want to see increases to the military. i don't want to see revenue -- revenues, so-called, that will impact the middle class, like eliminating state and local taxes. that's a very important one. some of the proposals that are on the table now, they came from romney. they came from democrats saying great idea. let's cap deductions at 35,000 or $40,000. that will, in a high tax rate like you are, that will really almost eliminate to a large extent, deductibility, state and local taxes. which, in turn, will put more pres
mississippi, also john mccormick for massachusetts -- >> are you saying that nancy pelosi and john boehner don't do that? [laughter] >> no, there were no cell phones or fax machines. we answered letters with typewriters. that is a lot of it. they don't really socialize. one reason that joe and i could work together is our new joe and i love him. i wouldn't do anything mean to him. so that is a lot of it. the times have changed so much. in the senate, one of the problems is they got away from regular order. that's also the washington term. what it means of the senate bill to a committee and you have a hearing. you have oversight hearings and the mark of the bill and you have an amendment and tivo. you go to the house and senate. you go to the conference and the senate bill to the president that needs to be signed. they don't do that anymore. even the transportation bill, which they did finally get done this year, it went through a procedure because the house never passed the bill. but they round out getting a transportation bill. it's a combination of things. modern technology and frankly it is
as to whether nancy pelosi will stay on as the house, democratic leader. i wonder she will step down. she raised a lot of money for democrats. >> she is a great leader and a good long time friend of mine. another former chair of the california democratic party. i do not know what is going to happen there. i believe nancy pelosi will remain and should remain the democratic leader of the house. i do not know that -- i have not heard any talk about a challenge. the last thing the democrats need is an internal squabble. they picked up some seats. the got the white house and the senate. i think there agenda ought to be on moving forward with the issues we have talked about. climate change, immigration reform, and text reform and not internal squabbling. >> our guest is bill press. >> might show is radio and tv. on current tv 3 hours. i will tell you what channel is and is simulcast on progress if talk stations nationwide. if you are lucky enough to have a progressive talk station wyck in madison, wisconsin, you can listen to the show or see it on current tv. host: ron from columbus georgia, independe
